Amazing winners from all angles. And both their backhands were jawdropping!

Yep, very high-quality match indeed. Congrats to the winner and Wawrinka.

In the last set Wawrinka was having break points every game Almagro was serving and he was holding easily untill the 4-5 were Almagro broke in his first opportunity (30-40). Clearly it helps a lot mentally if you start serving in the last set, if not you're under a lot of pressure when serving to stay in the match.

Wtf are you talking about Almagro had his bp chances. The match was almost a lottery. They were neck and neck in every rally.

This match is a good example of why a one hander vs. one hander is such a fantastic combo in a clay court match. A lot of angles that are just inaccessible to a lot of the current crop of players. Plus makes up for a great watch.
